Prayer request: surgery tomorrow

It's hard to believe but it's already time to get these pesky tissue expanders out and exchange them for some sleek, soft silicone implants! Tomorrow morning I'll have outpatient surgery at UCLA. I'm excited because these expanders are very uncomfortable and have been bugging me since June haha. Besides getting them out and getting the implants instead, Dr.C will be "cleaning up" the area - nipping and tucking, so to speak - so that the result will be nicer to look at than what I've got now. The expansion process has been to basically stretch/grow skin and that produces funny shapes and excess skin that is just kind of icky and I'm psyched that at this time tomorrow that won't be there anymore :). I would appreciate your prayers for a successful, complication-free, surgery and recovery so that I can stay on schedule and proceed with the next important step in my treatment process - radiation - which begins next month. Thank you! Love, Julie
